Page 2218 - Wonder Woman Roller Coaster for 2022!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone! I was planning on going sometime, probably a weekend, to the parks. I plan to get the flash pass/fads pass or whatever they call it. I wanted to know which rides we should hit first since it’s been about 5-6 years since I last went. Any advice I would greatly appreciate it

If your going to buy the flash pass. I would head to the back of the park first ( at opening, 10 00) and get multiple rides for the first hour. Then as crowds start filling in use flash pass to ride what you want.

Took my son and nephew today. Beautiful weather and light crowds.  Nephew is only 50" so we rode what we could. His first time to sfmm and he loved it.

Revolution 2

Ninja  2

Superman 3

Apocalypse 1

Gold rusher 1

Twisted 2

Scream 1

Goliath 2

Buccaneer 1

Justice league 2

Riddliers 1

And finished off the day with x2 longest wait of the day 15 min.

They were mostly running one train on rides today except TC.

Took a quick spin around the park today after not having visited in some time. Low crowds, but a lot of stuff down as well, presumably due to a combo of high winds, construction, and staffing. Single train ops on quite a few things, but that's to be expected on low-crowd days. Here's a couple more pics of the new coaster as it looks like they've made some progress since the last ones went up.

Usually (not always, but most of the time).... the park will have two designations in terms.  "Temporarily closed" means that the ride went down for some reason but it supposed to be open.  "Closed" means that it's not being offered at all.  So if it was showing as temp, then that should mean it's not on any kind of extended closure.

 

(Fun fact: they started doing this a few years ago on the app, after I sent an email to Guest Relations expressing some frustration that there was no way for guests to tell the difference.  So sometimes parks DO actually listen and take suggestions!)

Thanks for the update, WW is going up fast!  I bet it opens before Aquaman at SFOT, lol!

You would win that bet! Mid to late summer is the best bet for Aquaman based on current construction progress.

Hi everyone, I need some input. Me and a friend will be flying in this weekend and are looking to go to the park on Sunday. I’m sure it’s going to be packed. Can you recommend which tier of Flash pass we should get? Also how we should maneuver the park in order to maximize our time for such a busy day?

Am I the only one who thinks this new ride is another eyesore back there, along with West Coast Racers?  The mountain was once so beautiful!  Last year there was piles of trash on all the hill sides and in the queues... very sad to see the park in that condition.

On the other hand, I suppose it's worth it if I want my rides on X2, Revolution and Ninja!  Tatsu too, woohoo.

^ SoCal's entire landscape has been an eyesore recently.  Everything's just brown and dead.  At least the park is livening it up with color!

Yeah I hate when amusement parks sully their own beauty by building roller coasters.

If you can get there early, Sundays are usually pretty chill until about 12/1p (families have church & chores, kids want to sleep in, etc).  Because the park is SO big and has SO many attractions, it's really hard to make a definitive game plan.  It really comes down to which rides you care the most about experiencing.  But here are some things to consider:

  • Full Throttle has very low capacity and is the first coaster guests encounter, so that line gets long and stays long.  So if you get there early, hit that one first and call it done.
  • X2 , West Coast Racers, Tatsu, and Superman are also low capacity.  WCR also has a lot of downtime.  Ninja's capacity shouldn't be a problem but the last few times I've visited, the ROs were sloooow.
  • The Twisted Colossus line can get long but it moves consistently.  Fastest ops in the park, but it's an RMC so it's very popular.
  • Goliath, Viper, Scream, Gold Rusher, and Riddler are also decent capacity.

If you get the mid-tier Flash Pass, you can make a reservation for one of the low capacity rides while you wait in line for one of the better capacity rides and it'll probably be ready when you get finished.  And then just repeat that cycle for the day.  I don't think crowds will be crazy enough to warrant shelling out the insane price for Platinum.  Unless you're hell-bent on getting every single credit in one day.

You're not the only one I'm sure, but you're about 20 years late.

 

SFMM is what it is, and I happen to think WW really livens up that area.

According to some outlets the track work on Wonder Woman is complete. Any guesses on when it will actually open?? Optimistic me says July 15th. Realistic me says August 15th knowing SFMM and the amount of work that appears needing to be done in the DC universe area.
